How lucky are we? Sizzix is sending us one of their team members to teach two eclips by Sizzix workshops exclusively at our store! They will be in town on November 16th. The classes are still being developed and more information will be coming out as soon as we have it. We do know that there will be two classes, one on how to use the eclips and the other on the eCAL software. You won’t want to miss these workshops, watch for more information to be posted.
We still have eclips machines in stock, and we are offering it to you at a price of $299. The retail price is $598, buy it here and save! We include the eCAL software at that value as an added bonus. Let us know right away if you want one.
The eclips is an Electronic Shape-Cutting Machine.
Take a look at a total eclips! The eclips is the first electronic shape-cutting machine to combine the creativity of Sizzix artwork with amazing cutting, scoring and drawing precision and remote-controlled intelligence. This machine creates completely customizable shapes and letters to make cards, envelopes, scrapbook pages, bags, boxes, home décor projects, fashion accessories, altered art and much more!
With the Stamp2Cut cartridges, you can cut around Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps. Another creative option is eCAL software which works with your computer to create and modify your own designs and then works with the eclips to cut, score or draw the shapes.
